DESCRIPTION

You brutally force the target’s consciousness into a dimension of nightmares and terror. This unnatural dislocation opens conduits of pain for the target, causing the target’s body to fall prone and helpless as the target mindlessly screams unless it makes a successful Will save.

If the target failed its Will save, once the initial effect ends, the memory of the awful pain remains, making the target susceptible to other mental assault, imposing a –2 penalty on Will saves against mind-affecting effects for a period of one day. This penalty does not stack from multiple uses of this power.

Augment: If you spend 4 additional power points, the target suffers the penalty on Will saves against mind-affecting effects even if it made a successful save.
